Nominated by: Daniel Smith
Accomplishment: I am nominating Kari, the Optics Graduate Coordinator, for her outstanding support of the Optics undergraduates.
Specifically, Kari eagerly volunteered two of her evenings this month to give presentations to our undergraduates. Her willingness to go the extra-mile provided our undergraduates with knowledge and enrichment that would otherwise be unavailable. Student feedback from both sessions was outstanding!
Karis selfless dedication to duty reflects great credit upon herself, The Institute of Optics, and the University of Rochester. Meliora!
Benefit to the Hajim School: Kari's presentations provided several benefits to our undergrads:
-Knowledge of graduate programs and application timelines
-"Life skills" for our undergrads to use post-gradation
-Increasing the excellent esprit-de-corps that Optics majors enjoy
